Expect the rear, rest looks great.

Could have managed better pix

Isn't this the one which has some control stuff or so popping up when you insert the key or so?

All I had was my mobile camera. Yes - this is the one where the gear lever rises up when you start the car.

I should be able to get to drive all the new Land rover models some time soon.. But the Jag's - I dont know. lets see. :-)

They really shouldnt have blackened the C pillar on the XJ. The rear is not all that appealing as well.

The Sport looks brilliant!

Was shocked to see the truck behind you, as mentioned it to be Jag.

Amazing pics. Meticulously covered all the interiors of the cat & LR.

Excellent workmanship on the interiors, flawless. Love the blue-lit jag clock.

Excellent photographs! The new XJ seems quite promising and appears to be very luxurious! I do not like the way it looks from the back though. Almost like a Tata concept car! (Don't kill me for saying that!)

The boot-lid, the blackened C-pillar and the racked rear windscreen doesn't seem to gel with the rest of the car's elegant lines and proportions.

The Range Rover Sport looks fantastic!

very nice pics!! you are a very lucky dude!! say hi to optimus from my side!!


dont know if its just me, but the RRs speedo looks rather, cheap!! and its interiors dont look so exquisite either IMO for an SUV of that segment.

the XJ looks good, and im in love with its interior. but why do i get the feeling ive seen its rear somewhere before???

OMG!!

See! I told you guys! I mentioned in my earlier post that the rear reminds me of a Tata concept car that they usually showcase at the Geneva Auto Show and our very own Auto Expo at New Delhi!

The front end looks delicious but the rear isn't what I'd call good looking!

According to me the rear of the Jag resembles the Tata Prima concept.
